Hot-blooded mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Mila makes her debut in Dead or Alive 5.

Mila is an up-and-coming MMA champion who has scored spectacular victories all over the world. She spends her days training at the gym in between shifts at her part-time job, honing her skills as a lightning fast, orthodox striker with a strong follow-up ground game. Mila also feels intense admiration for a certain fighter, and she has entered the fifth Dead or Alive Tournament to follow her dream of taking on her idol in the ring.


Watch as Mila and Tina duke it out on the rooftops and alleys of New York City in the “Street” stage. Tucked behind elevated tracks with passing trains, the fighters pound away at each other while trying to keep a safe distance from the huge sign. Just one Power Blow could send the sign crashing into the path of a speeding train, causing massive damage to the surrounding environment and hurling both opponents down to the alley below.

Under the leadership of Hayashi-san, Team NINJA is developing a bright new future for the Dead or Alive franchise. As long-time fans of the series become more established, Team NINJA has taken great strides to ensure a new experience that matured with the player. Intertwining elements of realism within the Dead or Alive world, players will be able to connect with their fighters in a whole new light.

With each battle executing a new level of involvedness, the fighters themselves have become more complex in their design. In Dead or Alive 5 players will be able to feel more involved in the action as they see their fighters sweat as they exert more energy. Further, the grittier realistic design of these beloved fighters adds a new layer of depth to the Dead or Alive series. Players can also kick up the competition in online multiplayer modes where fighters must learn to utilize their strength and weaknesses to K.O. challengers.
